Our world isn’t quite the same these days, but fiction—even the kind that terrifies us—continues to provide the perfect escape. In this issue of The Big Thrill, we talk to authors whose latest releases will take you all over the world—and in the case of David Yoon’s CITY OF ORANGE, to a somewhat alternate reality. Head to Lisbon with what may be Chris Pavone’s most compelling book, or get your international fix with the latest from James Swallow. Neil Nyren chats with Katie Gutierrez, Dawn Ius gets the scoop on Mindy Carlson’s “sparkling” debut, and April Snellings chats with Samantha Allen about horror tropes and killer Sasquatches. Plus, we get up close with more than 25 authors of thrilling new releases, including Riley Sager, Tori Eldridge, Nancy Bilyeau, Hannah Mary McKinnon, and more! The June issue of The Big Thrill is live now!
